dionysus67's rating of the film Mission: Impossible II

John Woo's ultra-turbulent sequel to the De Palma film (which wasn't that good anyway) tries to render ultra slow-motion an integral part of film style. The latter turns thus into a magnification of trivial details (glances, gadgets, martial arts moves) on top of the impossible situations that arise. The athletic Cruise turns one off as early as the climbing scene and the homophobic subtext adds to the disaster.
